Would You Like a TRB Mentor? – Match Survey Due Friday Nov 29!

Learn how to be matched with a mentor at the Annual TRB meeting in January!

The TRB Young Members Council (YMC) is piloting a mentoring program that matches Young (under 35) or New Members with long-time annual meeting attendees.

Four committees are participating, all from within the Freight and Marine group: Freight Transportation Planning and Logistics, Ports and Channels, Urban Freight, and International Trade and Transportation.

While this pilot is open to everybody (regardless of committee membership status), it requires attendance at the Annual Meeting between the 12th and 16th of January in Washington DC.

If this program sounds like it could be for you, please visit to complete a survey to help them match you by FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2013.  The survey should take less than 5 minutes.

Please note that they cannot guarantee that everyone who applies will be matched as we anticipate potential-mentees to outnumber potential-mentors by a wide margin.  However, there will be an informal networking event that will be open to everyone, to be held at the Freight and Marine Caucus at the Annual Meeting.  More detailed information will be released closer to the Annual Meeting.
